And the winners are...

Two children's choice awards were announced this morning.

The official winner of the Rebecca Caudill Award, as voted on by 4th-8th graders across the state of Illinois, is Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick.

Check out Brandi's review on our Teen Blog from March of 2007 to find out more about this great story. Or check out a copy and read it for yourself!

Also announced was the winner of the Monarch Award, voted on by readers from kindergarten through third grade. It came in third at Lansing Library, but it won statewide... If I Built A Car by Chris Van Dusen, a fun picture book that's always checked out (put a copy on hold so you get a chance to read it!).

Time is almost up to read the 2008 nominees... watch for the new nominees for both awards to appear on the shelves in April!
